The Street Department crews will automatically pick up the leaves and there will be no need to contact the Street Department to give an address.

The Mayor reminds citizens to please rake the leaves to the street and not put the leaves in the street. He also encourages citizens to watch out for children playing in the leaves.  Do not put limbs, trash, stone, and brick in the leaf piles.  Branches/limbs should be in a separate pile.  Residents may feel free to bag the leaves, however.

The Mayor appreciates the cooperation of everyone during this time with the removal of leaves.
